Re: US Political Marketing And Implications

absolutely. I sometimes watch what voters on the right say. They besmirch globalism, and rightly so. Clinton pushed through a lot of NEOLIBERAL legislation, Robert Rubin made millions, they kind of just outright said, hey, go back to school, learn something new, your ****, see if we give a damn.

Political Outlook

If the Democrats do not take hold of the Senate in January, the next big gig is the realization for the Republicans that Biden is virtually a one term kind of guy considering his age. First order of business is to get past this pandemic no two ways about it. It does not serve even someone like Mitch...

Re: Where can we get a set of pointers on how to defeat Republican arguments simply and efficiently??

I have noticed a couple of typical strategies on the part of Rs when faced with question about their moral corruption: 1. Repeating back the same accusation: when told they limit themselves with rigid belief systems for example, they will claim we are doing the same. 2. False equivalency: When corr...

Re: It’s Time to Clean-Up the Mess

not just Trump but the Republicans in power. Trump is incompetent, he's a narcissist of high order. He has no interest in learning a damn thing about how things works, he's completely transactional, as in, what will benefit me, Donald Trump, always was from the start of his life. But, and this is im...

Re: Trump, Get Out of the Way

Trump is not the only one who is transactional and only cares about himself. Almost all of the Republicans in the Senate are the same as Trump. How could they not be. You say, Trump get out of the way. Well, I say, hey, why aren't any of the Republicans saying a damn thing about this crazy *** basta...

Re: Miller Replaces Esper As Defense Secretary.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is the first US Secretary of State to visit an Israeli settlement in Palestine. Ask yourself, just what does that portend regarding any kind of mediation towards true peace for Palestine or for Israel. When I was a young man, a good friend of mine, a catholic from Pale...

Re: Amend the Constitution to Prevent Another Trump

So we would suggest that presidential power needs to be limited, but then, what about the legislature and the nature of our representative government that creates all the laws, and all of our governmental expenditures. How could we instill a new ideal whereas people somehow believe in the power of t...

Re: Figured out why the Rs aren't leaving Dump

You are both right. Progressive Citizen and Bludog. The true leader would tell the truth, that's why they should be considered as a leader. Nobody is right all the time. There is a system which is powerful which allows people to reach a certain position. How does that person then speak the truth, ev...

Re: Van Jones Tells It Like It Is

Always appreciated Van Jones. He'd make a great president. A true leader understands a lot of the problems average people face in an ugly world. Life is not easy, never was it. Van Jones is sharp intellectually and somebody who is a terrific thinker on his feet. And sadly that's rare, at least it's ...

Re: Abortion

I'm pro-choice but I also agree that abortion should be extremely rare. How do you reduce abortions that could be avoided? I don't think taking away the women's right to their own body is the way. This is from history when anti-abortion laws only killed women and did not alleviate the problem. Possi...

This morning I watched a historian on CSPAN discuss Lincoln's address at Gettysburg. Lincoln himself was born only a generation away from what he called the men of iron, who wrote the Declaration of Independence. The world was watching the US closely back then as well. This was the first time in the...

Re: Relax. Biden will be sworn in Jan. 20.

Well I feel much better now that Biden and Harris have won, however, we need the senate. Mitch is bad news for any change at all. It's gonna be a big day on Jan 5. I'm kind of sweating bullets over the outcome.

I recently sent this to my Sister in Michigan who is a Trump supporter. I doubt she ever listened to it.

Re: Can we discuss how to defeat Trumptards in arguments?

A new technique I am trying is to not engage point by point with their claims, but rather to sail right over what they say, showing that it doesn't deserve to be responded to, and coming at them from the rear, telling them they don't have to be manipulated by the Rs if they exercise critical thinki...
